As COVID positivity continues to drop around the state, the Town of Stratford remains in the yellow level for the period of 3/06/22 – 3/19/22. Stratford has an average of 9 cases per 100,000 people per day during the period, a decrease of 0.4 since our last report on March 21st.
The Stratford Health Department and State Department of Public Health have confirmed 10,640 COVID-19 cases in Stratford, and 1,954 probable cases, for a total of 12,594 cases. This represents an increase of 36 confirmed cases and an increase of 3 probable cases since our last report of March 21st. The Health Department continues to monitor these trends. Unfortunately there have been 197 deaths to date.
The state is releasing information about how many individuals are vaccinated in all Connecticut communities. As of March 23rd, 79.25% of the town’s population had been vaccinated with at least a first dose.
The CDC is updating the Covid-19 vaccine clinical considerations for immunocompromised individuals, changing the interval for the booster dose to 3 months from 5 months for both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should receive a booster dose at least 3 months after the last (third) dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
Last week, the FDA approved the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the second COVID-19 vaccine to gain full approval. The vaccine will now be marketed as “Spikevax” for the prevention of COVID-19 disease in individuals 18 years of age and older.
Stratford clinics have dispensed 15,250 vaccines to date. It’s important to keep in mind that we are part of a larger regional and statewide vaccination network and effort.
Stratford does not vaccinate ONLY Stratford residents – many of residents and first responders have been vaccinated at locations outside Stratford, and conversely, many from outside of Stratford have been vaccinated here.
